Title: The Bastard Son Of Dean Friedman
Band: Half Man Half Biscuit
Album: ACD (1987)

tabbed by scef (email: funnell_teen_spirit@yahoo.com)

only they could write this song!


intro:

play this bit 8 times (it's pretty quick so best to
use alternate strumming)
e--4/5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--|
B--6/7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|
G--6/7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|
D--6/7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|
A--4/5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--|
E----------------------------------------|

then this bit just the once
e----2------------3----------(2)-----------(0)-|
B----3------------0----------(3)-----------(2)-|
G----2------------0----------(2)-----------(2)-|
D----0------------0----------(0)-----------(2)-|
A-----------------2------------------------(0)-|
E-----------------3----------------------------|
                              |             |
                              |             |
                              V             V
                      these bits are optional - I don't
                      think they're actually played but
                      it demonstrates the chord
                      progression used

the organ bit over the above is: (call it organ bit A)
e-------5-7-5---------------------5-7-5-----5---|-----|
B-5---7-------7-7-8-7-5-7-7-5---7-------7-8---7-|-5-7-|
G---7-------------------------7-----------------|-----|
A-----------------------------------------------|-----|
                                               /     /
                                              /     /
                                           don't play 
                                           1st time
verse
D  xx0232
G  320003
A  x02220
F# 244322

       D             G             <-----play organ
well I heard...Bette Midler...           bit A over   

   D              A                <-----these lines
so gleefully...my friends
         D         F#          G   <-----play organ
but they said..she wasn't...to die       bit B over
    D                     A        <-----these lines  

and by the way...news for you            (look below)


organ bit B (chords above to help)
    D             F#G D     A
e-------5-7-5-----6-7-7-9-7-5-|
B-5---7-------7-7-------------|
G---7-------------------------|
D-----------------------------|


then play above verse section again, except use this
as organ bit B (chords above to help)
    D             F#G   D     G    A         D
e-------5-7-5-----6-7-|-15-14-12----15-14-12----|
B-5---7-------7-7-----|----------15----------15-|
G---7-----------------|-------------------------|
D---------------------|-------------------------|
                      |<--play this bit twice-->|


then there's this instrumental section. the guitar
chimes away at an A chord while an organ does this
twice (this might not be exact but sounds pretty
close)
e-------0---2---0---------------|
B---3-----------------3---------|
G-2---2---2---2---2-0---2-0-2-0-|
D-------------------------------|

then (still instrumental break) the organ plays this
twice while the guitar p;ays the chords above (again
might not be exact)
  D         A     D
e---------------0-----|
B-----3-----3-----3-3-|
G---------------------|
D-0-0---0-0---0-------|
A---------------------|

then it's back to familiar territory (ie most of the
above is played again) then there's this guitar solo
(again might not be exact)
e--------------------------------------|
B-----8-------------------8------------|
G-7b9---9b7---7-------7b9---9b7---7~~--|
D-----------9---9-7-9-----------9----9-|
A--------------------------------------|

e----------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------7-------------|
G---------------7h9b11b9-7---7b9---9b7-----7---|
D-----7-9-9-7h9------------9-----------9p7---9-|
A-7h9------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------|

("supercalifragilistic...")
e-------------------------|
B----------------------10-|
G---------------7-9b11----|
D-----7-9-9-7h9-----------|
A-7h9---------------------|
E-------------------------|

e-------------------14----------|
B-10h12p10-12-14b15----14\12----|
G----------------------------14-|
D-------------------------------|
A-------------------------------|
E-------------------------------|

then it's a D chord a few times, then all that remains
is already tabbed. some bits might not be exact but it
sounds pretty much ok to me, so have lotsa fun
